Hysteria, the material for of satire....

It's the year 2025 and two fellows are having a conversation. Let's listen in....

One friend notes, "I can't believe America was surpassed by the EU in the field of technology. If only the dang school had not wasted our time with that chapter on Intelligent Design in our biology text!"

"It really is amazing. I mean, the way the research on the human genome just stopped, stopped! If only someone had done more molecular studies of protists revealing the roots of multicellularity. I tell you. But all the time, wasted...just wasted!" the other replied.

"If only someone had seen what would happen from ID. Oh, if only! But instead there was no one left to study bird flu and the Marburg virus. Now they run rampant in the world. How could they have been so blind?!"

"Well, there was this one fellow named Myers, can't remember the first name, but I hear he wrote about what would happen if our time as students was wasted with ID. Wasted!"

"Hmmm, yes...well, I don't know about you but most of my time wasted as a student was spent playing X-Box."

"No, no....he was on to something! It was the wasted time. Wasted!"
